Welcome to Ashford Partnership Against Crime

A.P.A.C. is a Business Crime Reduction Partnership. We are a not-for-profit organisation consisting of some 75 businesses and partners.
 
  • Linked together via a 'town net' radio system, members can contact the local CCTV Control Centre, PCSOs and Police.
 
  • Access is granted to an interactive, secured website, regularly updated with local crime intelligence, images and information for business premises provided by local and national government.
 
  • We provide a mobile version of the website, with easy access to information reports, and details of those excluded under our 'Exclusion Scheme'. Can also be used to provide 'quick-time' information to other members, and reports of crimes or anti-social behaviour as it occurs.
 
  • We belong to the National Association of Business Crime Partnerships, and are registered with the National Pubwatch Scheme.

3.  
To reduce fear of crime and the effects of fear of crime.

4.  Assisting the apprehension or prosecution of offenders.

5.  
To create a "safe and secure" environment for customers, staff and visitors.

6.  To strengthen partnership working with the business community, police, local authority and other key agencies and organisations.

7.  
To be an integral part of the local community safety and crime reduction strategy, and work in partnership    with those responsible for delivering the community safety action plan.
